Tasting

Intensive purple, subtle violet rim, impressve viscosity. Distinctive fragrance which leaves no doubt about the supremacy of this athlete. Wild cherry extravaganza, black tea, zests and cinnamon bark, additionally red peach and roasted nuts, well enveloped into fine wood. Dry, densely layered displaying persistent spicy fruitiness, cool, smoky with cloves and curry. Intensively mineral type and pulpy, enormous long finish. Masterfully translates the advantages of the wnery´s oldest Blaufränkisch vineyards.

Pairing

Regina´s „ basic gravy“ to ossobucco, a steak medium-rare directly from the producer and double-cut – together with a little salad. Accompanying hard cheese – 4 torque style. Kummelweck with pepper salami, with roasted liver, instead of surf to turf. Roast wild boar. And highlightening otherwise eventless days.

Making

Hand-picked into small boxes, from the single vineyard Plachen where we own the only two Blaufränkisch parcels without chalk – loam on weathered silicate, practically no selection necessary, beginning of October 2011 with perfect parameters of ripeness.

Destemming, mash fermentation in closed stainless steel tanks at a temperature of more than 30°C for 14 days, followed by 4 more days of maceration, gentle pressing and maturation in 300 l barrels (approximately 50% new).
